The men of St Mel are once again having a day long, faith filled event at their parish. This is the 4th edition of the Men’s Day of Faith and it is going to be an incredible event.

1) The Call to Heroic Leadership, as illustrated through the life of St. Maximillian Kolbe
2) Leave no Man Behind, and how Christ frees from the slavery of pornography,
3) Be a Man After God's Own Heart, or how to take up your cross and follow Him.

Taize

Encounter Christ in Song and Silence
Please join us this Lent for an evening of meditative and contemplative candlelight prayer service, using the music of Taize.

Music Provided by John and Mary Palmer


"Song is one of the most essential elements of worship. Short chants repeated again and again, give it a contemplative character. Using just a few words, they express a basic reality of faith, quickly grasped by the mind. As the words are sung over many times, this reality gradually penetrates the whole being. " (Brother Roger, the former Prior of the Taize Community)

 

 

Our Regional Service Team plans to attend the Secretariat monthly meeting scheduled at 7 p.m. on Thursday, January 22 at Christ the King Retreat Center.

As always, the community is welcomed to attend the monthly Secretariat meetings and is strongly encouraged to participate this week when some of the members of Region XI Service Team will be present.

This month''s meeting will focus on the sustainability of our movement as a result of four of the eight Secretariat positions currently vacant.

Blessings,

Corine Pekari, Lay Director
